I just replaced the pins...
The drag is getting them out; I did mine in the car.
There is a kit at AZ that fits the top; there is(was) a kit from mn12performance that does the bottom.
It has new pins, and new bronze bushings. (as well as a new door striker)
I dremeled the top off the stock pins with a cutoff wheel, and drove them out the bottom. then drilled the holes to match the new bushings, installed the door striker that comes with the kit, and no more sag.
You have to kinda 'line bore' the hinge holes, so they line up, might be easier off the car, but you can do it without removing them. I used a long drill bit to do the holes.
You also have to hold the door in place while you are doing this; a tranny jack with a wood support made to fit the door worked well, and took 10 minutes to rig. If the door falls off the rig, the glass is shot, so be careful!
